Before and After Photos

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 12
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 12

    This patient has had a longstanding right upper lesion since she was a child. It has been slowly growing and wishes to have it removed. The lesion was carefully removed and she then underwent eyelid reconstruction. Post operative photo was taken 1 year after reconstructive surgery.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Right upper lid lesion (benign nevus)

    Procedure performed: Excision of right upper lid nevus, eyelid reconstruction

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 11
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 11

    This patient had a large right upper lid chalazion that was removed through a minimally invasive procedure where the incision was placed on the backsurface of the eyelid. This photo was taken several weeks after the removal of the chalazion.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Right upper lid chalazion.

    Procedure performed: Excision and removal of chalazion.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 10
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 10

    This patient had a large left upper lid chalazion. The chalazion was removed through a minimally invasive technique which does not leave a visible scar. The incision is made on the backsurface of the eyelid and is performed in the office. The patient did well and was able to drive home after the surgery.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Left upper lid chalazion.

    Procedure performed: Excision and removal of chalazion

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 9
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 9

    This patient had a slowly growing left lower lid mole since childhood. She wished to have it removed. The goal of the procedure was to remove the lesion in its entirety and then reconstructing the lid. We call this a full thickness wedge excision of the eyelid. Dr. Zoumalan used minimally invasive techniques to help allow the lid to heal as well and naturally as possible. Stiches were in place up to 10 days to allow the lid to properly heal well.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: lower lid mole (nevus).

    Procedure performed: Full thickness wedge excision of left eyelid lesion with eyelid reconstruction

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 8
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 8

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Bilateral upper lid ptosis, left upper lid lesion (black arrow), lower lid laxity. Lower lid laxity was resulting in tearing.

    Procedure performed: Bilateral upper lid ptosis repair, excision of left upper lid lesion, and canthoplasty (lower lid resuspension). The left upper lid lesion was a benign seborrheic keratosis.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 7
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 7

    Preoperative photo a female patient with slowly enlargening lesions along the medial (closer to the nice) upper and lower lids. They are painless but she wished to have them removed. Post operative photograph was taken 4 weeks after complete excision of the lesions. The biopsy was consistent with xanthelasma. This is a commonly seen condition that is frequently bilateral and often seen in patients with hyperlipidemia.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 6
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 6

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Bilateral upper and lower lid cysts.

    Procedure performed: Excision of upper and lower lid cysts.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 5
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 5

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Right lower lid chalazion.

    Procedure performed: Excision of right lower lid chalazion. Dr. Zoumalan performed this procedure in the office using local anesthesia only. The lesion recurred and required steroid injections to help resolve the inflammation.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 4
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 4

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Right upper lid inclusion cyst.

    Procedure performed: Excision of right upper lid inclusion cyst. The photo on the right was taken 10 days after surgery; there is still a resolving bruise but you can see the ptosis that the lesion was causing has been resolved in addition to the removal of the cyst.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 3
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 3

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Right upper lid cyst.

    Procedure performed: Excision of right upper lid cyst with eyelid reconstruction.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 2
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 2

    This patient had a slowly growing left lower lid mole since childhood. She wished to have it removed. The goal of the procedure was to remove the lesion in its entirety and then reconstructing the lid. We call this a full thickness wedge excision of the eyelid. Dr. Zoumalan used minimally invasive techniques to help allow the lid to heal as well and naturally as possible. Stiches were in place up to 10 days to allow the lid to properly heal well.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Left lower lid mole (nevus)

    Procedure performed: Full thickness wedge excision of left eyelid lesion with eyelid reconstruction.

  • Before Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 1
    After Photo-Benign Eyelid Patient 1

    This patient had a large left lower lid chalazion. Given its large size, it was pulling down her lid and resulting in an ectropion (outward directed eyelid). The chalazion was removed using a minimally invasive approach and she healed quite well. Her lid returned to a more normal position as well. The chalazion procedure was performed in the office using only local anesthesia, and the incision made was made on the back surface of the eyelid so that it was not visible when the lid healed.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Left lower lid chalazion

    Procedure performed: Excision of left lower lid chalazion (in office procedure).
